Fluffy Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie Pancakes, Vegan
Easy 20 minute gluten free, plant based pancakes. No need to call anyone to the table. Your family will smell these cooking from miles away and rush to the kitchen with forks in hand.
These golden disks of pumpkin goodness are so fluffy they levitate. They have a soft pillowy pumpkin texture. And the taste…. the taste is what I imagine pumpkin pie tastes like in heaven.
I am no pumpkin spice apologist. I adore warming pie spices in my oatmeal and muffins, coffee and granola, even in my “creamy” winter soups.
There is one thing I can not bear though it is pumpkin pie. I have never met a pumpkin pie I enjoyed. Many a person has tried to dissuade me of this quirk in my palate by baking me their World Famous Pumpkin Pie or their Great Aunt Sally’s Pumpkin Pie that won the Blue Ribbon at the State fair 5 years in a row.
One bite in I’d know.
As I chewed my mind would murmer: “ Meh! !
But my well mannered mouth would utter an “mmmm” and a “wow! This is so good!”
Now I love pumpkins and sweet potatoes of every sort and every way except pie. My guys were shocked to learn that these pancakes are gluten free. Cause they are so darn light and fluffy. I plan to focus more on gluten free baking this year. The more people that can come and eat at the communal table of life the better. Please let me know if you have any allergy or limitation in your diet.
